late, but what can I do? ... Yes, I know he’ll make me work some extra time to make it
up ... but you know I haven’t been feeling well lately so I want to find out what’s wrong
with me ... OK, I’ll see you as soon as I can.

Presenter:
... and so, it’s over to our reporter, David Muir, who’s on the spot.
Reporter:
Yes, thank you Sue, we’re expecting developments any minute now. For the
past few days, I’ve been staying not far from here and people have been gathering on
the streets. It looks as if there might be trouble, if they’re not satisfied with the results of
the talks. The leaders should be coming out very soon, and the moment they come down
the steps I’ll try to fight my way through the crowd of other reporters on the pavement
Presenter:
OK, David, we’ll be back to you as soon as anything happens.

Yes, I’ve had a very varied career. I’ve had my successes and my failures and that’s the
way life goes. All I can say is, I’ve never known what’s going to happen next. I know
that many other actors have had more success than me without my talent, and I could let
that bother me, but that’s not the way I am. I think that I might not have done
everything I’m capable of, but worse things can happen to you.

... so many people just don’t seem to understand what a weapon a vehicle is. Every
holiday time we have the same thing. Every holiday time we give the same warnings,
but every holiday time they take no notice. So many drivers are just so careless, and,
frankly, stupid. They obviously don’t care about driving properly, or they wouldn’t
behave like they do. Then they wonder why they get involved in accidents! And when
they do, we have to deal with the results.

Look, I’m not going to go through this again. It’s obvious that you never listen to a
word I say, so what’s the point in discussing it now? You shouldn’t have bought that
car. I told you enough times, there are plenty of better ones for the money - but now that
you have, it’s too late to do anything about it. You asked me what I thought and then
you took no notice. Look, I can only tell you what I think - if you choose to ignore me,
that’s up to you.

Man:
What I object to is that the things never come when they’re supposed to.
Woman:
Yeah, I mean the other day I must have been waiting for three quarters of an
hour. They always seem to take ages to come, don’t they?
Man:
That’s if they even turn up at all. I mean, they make this big thing about how you
save money if you use them instead of going by car, and I suppose that’s true but...
Woman:
... yeah, whether it’s cheap or not is neither here nor there if you can never be
sure whether they’re going to turn up or not.
Man:
Quite. I don’t know why they even bother to print the timetables.

Well, when I became the champion, I thought there was nothing else left for me to
achieve, but after a while, when I’d got used to it, I wanted to win again and again. I’d
